Troubleshooting
Some parts of the
screen do not light up
After-images appear
DVD
The plasma TV panel is manufactured using an extremely
high level of precision technology, however, sometimes
some parts of the screen may be missing picture elements
or have luminous spots. This is not a malfunction.
Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended
period, as this can cause a permanent after-image to
remain on the Plasma TV.
Examples of still pictures include logos, video games,
computer images, and Teletext.
Note:
The permanent after-image on the Plasma TV resulting
from fixed image use is not an operating defect and as such
is not covered by the Warranty.
This product is not designed to display fixed images for
extended periods of time.
DTV signal jumps from 0 to
100 and back.
•The signal is too weak to display a picture. Try to re-orient
the antenna to a suitable direction and auto-tune again.
No closed captioning seen when
the TV is connected to a set top
box.
•Press the CC button on the remote controller to switch off
the closed captioning. Then switch it on again.
